Vote: veto

Dmitry and Yasumasa have already agreed to pull back this CFV, but since the 
process doesn't seem to have a way to do that as far as we can see a veto is 


Two of the 34 changes were backed out so I don't think they can be included in 
the count.

Out of the 32 remaining, six are duplicates. With duplicate I mean that parts of 
the same change has been pushed to different repositories (e.g. jdk + hotspot). 
I don't think duplicates should be counted as two significant changes, but only one.

That leaves us with 26 changes which is unfortunately not enough to reach 
Reviewer status.

And, as for all contributors, there are always a few changes that when put on 
the spot is difficult to consider as "significant" - especially since there is 
no real definition of what significant means. Looking through the list there are 
at least a few that I would not consider significant and since Yasumasa is so 
close to the threshold this matters.

I vote to pull back this CFV until Yasumasa has a few more contributions in there.
